Forum: etree Subject: Metadata in zip file not matching individual tracks

I was just looking at a show I uploaded a few years ago (http://archive.org/details/canine1998-05-08.flac16f). When I originally uploaded it I didn't have all the track names, and put unknown1, unknown2. Some time later I got the correct titles from the band and updated the show data. Today I downloaded the zip file of vbr mp3's, and 3 of the tracks show up as unknownX. I triggered a derive, and if I download one of the tracks by itself (5,6, or 9) the title is correct, but if I download the zip file, the titles are unknown.
Also, FWIW, when you download the individual tracks, the file names are like canine1998-05-08t08.mp3, but when you download the zip file they are canine1998-05-08t08_vbr.mp3. Makes me wonder if the zip file is not being regenerated even though the tracks are ?

You're correct, but this behavior is a little surprising.

It used to be that when you queued up a re-derive, it would clear out all previous derivatives. This is obviously not the case because I see you re-derived but the 64kbps mp3's are still there. It appears that only admins have the ability to wipe out old derivatives, which I just did. Should be all set now.

in the Item Manager section users can choose to relace all, some or none of the derived formats. there are radio buttons for selecting.
